Description of problem:
It could be useful to join different partitions of the same hard disk
using linear raid and install onto them.
I consider linear raid lighter than LVM for people who don't need all
LVM functionality. Linear raid can allow, for example, to divide the
hard disk in three partitions, two for the system and a swap one, in
such a way that the swap partition is physically located in the
intermediate cilinders of the disk, probabilistically improving swap
This is what I wanted to do in my system, but I didn't find the
possibility to create linear raid partitions.
Thanks a lot,

The current movement in the kernel is actually taking functionality
out of the in-kernel RAID layer and putting it in device-mapper (and
thus lvm2) instead.  So adding support for linear raid in the
installer is really the wrong direction to go.
